The team may be a collective of lawyers, barristers, QCs, or a legal firm willing to take on the relentless task to protect Alley Katz Australia Org.'s legal rights. AKAO is not a legal firm.
Engagement issues may include, but are not limited to:
Dealing with RSPCA and local councils (for the time being Whittlesea, Darebin, Moreland, Hume) on matters impacting AKAO ability to function effectively in the community, including the freedom of its volunteers to rescue cats and kittens in the LGAs;
Representing AKAO in VCAT hearings and Magistrates Court etc as required arising from challenges to AKAO's rights and the rights of its volunteers. The provisions of the Domestic Animals Act 1994, Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act 1986 and individual council local laws provide underlying guidance.
Overseeing facility and land acquisition contracts proposed.
Ideally, AKAO should not be exposed to the overheads of the legal representation process as the charity has limited funds to mount cases and cover resource overheads.
Even if you would like to just engage as a team member on an adhoc basis, that can be accommodated.
